Flights to Bamako and Dakar are operated on Boeing 757-200 with a capacity of 148 seats (16 in Business Class and 132 in Economy); after 1 June, they will be on Boeing 737-700 (12 seats in Business Class and 112 seats in Economy). These two new destinations will round off the service offering of Equatorial Congo Airlines, which already provides services to and from Cotonou (Benin), Douala (Cameroon), Libreville (Gabon) and Kinshasa (DRC) as part of its regional network.

Equatorial Congo Airlines now connects Brazzaville to eleven destinations:

_ Domestic network: Pointe-Noire and Ollombo.

_ Regional network: Kinshasa (river shuttle), Libreville, Douala, Cotonou, Bamako, Dakar.

_ International network: Paris, Dubai, Brussels (connecting from Paris).

The new Brazzaville-Dakar route via Bamako offers new opportunities to business and leisure travellers from Senegal and Mali, who will be able to connect easily with the ECAir network via its Brazzaville hub, in particular for destinations such as Paris, Dubai, Kinshasa and Cotonou…

“The new routes (Libreville, Dakar, Bamako) are the fulfilment of our efforts to connect the African economic capitals with each other and with the rest of the world,” says Fatima Beyina-Moussa, Managing Director of ECAir and President of the African Airlines Association (AFRAA). “We are going to continue our expansion with the opening of the next destinations (Yaounde, Abidjan, Bangui, N’Djamena and Beirut). All of this is possible because with Maya-Maya, we have one of the most modern airports in Africa, with a high handling capacity. We are thus benefiting from the vision demonstrated by the President of the Republic, His Excellency Denis Sassou Nguesso, and his government, when they made significant investments in the construction and modernisation of the country’s airport infrastructure.”

To draw new passengers, ECAir is focusing on its African identity, its attractive rates, its reliable planes meeting international standards, and its dynamic, qualified and able personnel. In addition, the company boasts one of the best customer loyalty programs in Africa, “Mboté,” with close to 30,000 members.
